Meeting of John Kerry and Saber Hossain Chowdhury to implement the climate initiative

A meeting was held between Bangladesh Prime Minister’s Special Envoy on Climate Change Saber Hossain Chowdhury and US President’s Climate Envoy John Kerry.

Both countries have expressed interest in deepening bilateral relations to address the challenges posed by climate change. The meeting was held at John Kerry’s office at the US State Department in Washington recently.

According to the circular, climate envoys from both countries discussed mitigation, adaptation funding, and technology transfer, as well as building greater bilateral cooperation in various global climate platforms, including COP.

Bangladeshi Ambassador Saber Hossain Chowdhury reiterated Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s commitment on climate issues. He said, ‘Bangladesh will continue to raise its voice on behalf of the climate vulnerable and less developed countries to fill the gaps in global climate commitments.’

Apart from this, Saber Hossain Chowdhury informed John Kerry about various climate initiatives taken by the government. He mentioned the ‘Mujib Climate Prosperity Plan’ among these initiatives. He said this plan will start the path of tolerance for Bangladesh from climate risk to prosperity.

Meanwhile, US President’s Special Envoy John Kerry said, ‘The United States is working with countries to reduce carbon emissions. Apart from this, they are working with organizations like the World Bank on financing issues.

Regarding investment in Bangladesh’s renewable sector, John Kerry said, “The United States is willing to help Bangladesh achieve its climate goals as a partner.”

Both Saber Hossain Chowdhury and John Kerry stressed the importance and need for consensus building and global solidarity through increased concerted efforts to make COP28 a success. The Ambassador of Bangladesh to the United States Muhammad Imran was present in the meeting.

Earlier in Washington, Saber Hossain Chowdhury chaired a global inquiry meeting on government financing and progress to phase out fossil fuels.

Top local lawmakers from Uruguay, Bolivia, Colombia, Zambia, and Uganda, as well as US Senator Ed Markey and Canadian Senator Rosa Galvez, attended the inquiry and heard from expert witnesses.
